Hollis, NH Lodging, Real Estate, Dining & History
The town of Hollis, New Hampshire was Incorporated in 1746 by Governor Benning Wentworth. The town of Hollis takes its name from a very old English family. Governor Wentworth’s ancestor, Thomas Wentworth, first Earl of Strafford, was married to Arabella Holles, daughter of John Holles, Earl of Clare. Hollis was first called West Dunstable, or Nittisset, which at one time was part of Groton, Massachusetts, and is now Nashua.
Hollis continues to celebrate “Old Home Day”. This annual event usually features kiddie rides, a parade, barbecue, silent auction, booths, fireworks, live music, balloon rides, pet parade, and heritage craft demonstrations. Hollis Old Home Day is generally held the second weekend in September at Nichols Field in downtown Hollis. Other popular annual Hollis events include the Hollis Strawberry Festival (held every June) and the Hollis Apple Festival. The Hollis Apple Festival includes a performance by the Hollis Town Barn – this is a popular Hollis October event. The historic Timber Post Bed and Breakfast provides comfortable local lodging accommodations.
